Tom Cruise is the latest celebrity victim of "swatting," which is when someone makes a fake 911 call and sends police to a home.

Police said they were called Thursday about an armed robbery in progress at the actor's Beverly Hills home.

Officers met private security there and determined there was no emergency. Cruise was not home. The case is being investigated as a false emergency report.

A juvenile was arrested last month for allegedly making "swatting" calls targeting Ashton Kutcher and Justin Bieber.
